INTRO: Two thirds of Scots who are "undecided" about independence, believe Brexit makes it more likely - and more than half would be more likely to vote Yes in a second independence referendum if Britain leaves the EU without a deal, according to a new poll. Results from the first Progress Scotland poll [...] suggest that Brexit is radically changing Scots views on independence.

According to the new figures, the issue of EU membership has gone from being of concern to just 22 per cent of voters at the time of the 2014 independence vote, to being the main concern at 43 per cent - above the economy and the NHS. And the poll, of more than 2000 people, found that of those "undecided" on independence, 63 per cent now believe Brexit will make it more likely, with just 13 per cent disagreeing. It also found that 45 per cent of formerly undecided voters have changed their view on independence as a result of Brexit. And while 49 per cent of the same cohort say they will wait to see the impact of Brexit before deciding how they would vote in any new independence referendum, that changed to 56 per cent saying they would be more likely to back independence in the event of a no deal Brexit.

"As of 2018, there are currently 3,142 counties and county-equivalents in the 50 states and the District of Columbia." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/County_(United_States)

So, yeah, 473 counties, without naming the regions, could easily be cherry-picked from many Democrat-ruined economies...in which, unaffordable housing is not news, or even surprising.
